Celebrated fashion photographer Keiichi Nitta was commissioned to shoot a cover for a 2008 issue of Japanese fashion magazine Commons & Sense Man. The subjects of the shoot were Pharrell and Nigo. Like many of his other shoots, Keiichi snapped an impromptu, casual Polaroid flick for his own reference and record. Devoid of digital interference, staging, lighting, and the context of celebrity, Keiichi was able to capture an intimate, honest image of two friends, with a shared vision and shared passion for creating.
